Card Grading Services
KSA uses a 10-point certification process that includes checking centering, corners, cut, colour, borders, enamel, focus, picture quality, registration and micro imperfections. Cards are measured, checked under magnification and special lighting. You can feel confident when buying or selling your KSA card that it has been professionally graded.
KSA sonically seals all of its graded cards in a scratch resistant, optical quality, UV protected holder. These top of the line holders are visually appealing and very protective of all forms of card stock sealed inside them. All cards graded by KSA have a unique serial number that corresponds to the card information and grade...this information is then recorded in the KSA online database. Information on KSA graded cards can be searched using our Serial Number Verification.
